Charlie Chaplin's Smile

The Baker-Baum Concert Hall

It’s not well known that Charlie Chaplin composed almost all of the music in his films. This unique program juxtaposes the music of Chaplin with works by the great composers who influenced him most, including Debussy, Stravinsky, Brahms, and Gershwin. Chaplin’s relationships with these compositional masters is explored through music and story with screen clips of Chaplin’s silent era films, musical accompaniment by Philippe Quint, and rare video footage of Chaplin conducting his orchestras in recording sessions!

“Chaplin’s Smile is overflowing with a very personal brand of joy that Philippe Quint is anxious to share. It’s irresistible.”

 

WCRB Boston

“Quint seems to have struck the perfect balance of finding Chaplin’s robust charm in tracks such as ‘Weeping Willows’ and ‘Tango Bitterness’, while keeping an ever-present romantic tone in this album.”
